ICSH Allianz Community Housing Awards 2019

The ICSH is proud to again partner with Allianz for the 2019 Community Housing Awards, which seek to recognise excellence across ten individual categories reflecting the current housing landscape. At a time of increased pressure for delivery from the sector we want to showcase the numerous approved housing bodies and local authorities rising to the challenge and continually making efforts to meet high housing demand.

 

 

ICSH AGM 2018

Reflecting on the work of the ICSH during 2017 and in the years to come issues that were raised included the challenges facing housing associations and the ICSH as membership bodyin relation to the CSO/Eurostat reclassification of housing associations as part of the local government sub-sector. Also, the recurring concerns facing our smaller (Tier 1) members around long-serving voluntary board members and the problem of succession and governance were also raised. Minister Eoghan Muprhy addressed members in attendance and spoke of the housing association sector as critical to the delivery of social housing under Rebuilding Ireland.
